Three sleeps to go!

August 20, 2014

General

Bloody iinet have informed me that I will hopefully maybe have internet access by close of business Friday. A mere three weeks after I moved house.

Glacial.

It doesn’t allow much time (or comfort) to burn CDs for my 80s party from the Cloud.

Fortunately my friend Lara’s hubby is coming to the party (so to speak and literally) with the 5-6 hour song mix he created for my sister’s 40th (also 80s themed – it runs in the family).

My sister’s 40th was bulk fun, my housewarming won’t come close. Everyone went mad with their costumes. One bloke came as a Rubik’s cube, there were guys in long wigs, platform boots and skin-tight pants with pairs of socks stuffed down the front …

But I’ll do my best. The smoke machine, “intelligent lights” (whatever they are) and LEDs have been booked; music is now under control; speakers have been borrowed; fluoro outfit is sorted; so has spray tan (my friend Mel is offering an Lana’s housewarming special of $20 per tan – bargain – bookings at 0412 289942) bought solar-powered garden lights at Bunnings yesterday; disco balls have been hung …

I’m not obsessed. Nooooooo!

There’s just the tricky matter of apologetic notes to neighbours to write. Yay.

I have no idea why I organise parties, because they freak the bejesus out of me. I panic so much about no one turning up, it almost brings me to the brink of hyperventilation.

Especially now people have hit their 40s – so tempting to change your mind and decide on a quiet night instead.

I will be a jittery mess on Saturday. And that may mean too many taste tests of the Sex On The Beach punch waaaay too early in the night.

I know I’m acting like it’s my second childhood, but I don’t have the same stamina this time around.

It’s that delicate balance between being the life of the party and vomitting in someone’s beret at 10pm (been there, bought the T-shirt).

I’ve charged the school mums with reminding me to DRINK MORE WATER.

Ooooh, I’m a bit excited. Tainted Love is calling my name …

    Your excitement is contagious! Can’t wait to read about this party after the event. I’m sure you will have a great night. From reading previous posts it’s clear you have a gift for planning/hosting amazing parties!

    All net connections are that long. The need to go through Telstra (usually) for the physical bit (no matter who you get the service through, unless Optus) is the kink: for my old places iinet had to fit in with Telstra’s service calls. Three weeks is short – I waited six at our last place and that was just moving the account…

    Glacial!! We just waited 4 months for iinet to connect us to NBN. When it was finally installed we were ecstatic – and my husband would say I haven’t been off it in the 2 months since :)
